Asia Trip 2015 – Sleepless In Hong Kong

Chinese might say that 04/04 is not a lucky number and it could be true – I was very unlucky today.

The flight from Sydney to Hong Kong was delayed and the connecting flight from Hong Kong to Taipei left without me. 😦 Apparently, it was also the last flight for the day to fly over the channel. I was stranded in Hong Kong for the night with just my passport and a wallet in my bag.

This is part of the fun of traveling – dealing with problems on the go, regardless how well I thought my plans were. 🙂 I actually have never been left stranded with no luggage before. I started to look forward to see what else could go wrong now.

The airline put me in the Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel (I gave it 5 stars for the facility and the service!) for 5 hours. It was 12am when I checked in. I planned to watch some movies but after a hot shower, I fell into sleep. 😃

5 hours went quickly and before I knew, I was woken up by the front desk and on my way back to the airport. I have not been in Hong Kong for at least 5 years. I had lots good memories here (mainly the great food! 😃) and I still don’t like the humidity. I didn’t expect to queue up for food this early in the airport though. I walked around the airport for some excise and then hogged on the free wifi. I’m now ready to arrive in Taipei and meet the rest of the travel gang!
